Gwen Stefani's wedding dress is all anyone can talk about after the No Doubt singer finally tied the knot with Blake Shelton over the weekend.

The singer wore not one but two stunning wedding dresses during the nuptials, which took place at Blake's Oklahoma ranch.

Her first dress was a bespoke sweetheart Vera Wang gown with a fitted bodice and floor-length skirt. And it held extra-special sentimental value for the couple, as the veil (which happened to be the length of the entire chapel) featured the names of some of Gwen's nearest and dearest.

Gwen Stefani's wedding dress designer, Vera Wang, took to Instagram to reveal the finer details behind the gown.

Alongside a series of photographs from the big day, the designer explained, "Gwen chose a custom lily-white silk georgette and hand tumbled tulle high-low gown with a plunging neckline and a cutaway back." 

"The gown was worn with a lily-white chapel length veil featuring hand-embroidered names of Blake, Gwen, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo, flanked by two white roses at the hem of the veil."

Gwen's second dress was also a Vera Wang gown, but this time a quirkier one for the "fun" part of the day—which she teamed with a pair of ranch-ready cowboy boots. 

Explaining the decisions behind this creation, Vera said, "For the reception she chose a custom lily-white Italian silk crepe and hand tumbled tulle strapless mini dress with hand-pieced silk, crystal, and sequin embroidered foliage delicately trickling from the waist down the skirt." 

"The embroidery is highlighted by a pair of hand-sewn love birds symbolizing the couple. The are joined by three baby love birds representing Gwen's children."

The Voice co-stars confirmed they'd finally tied the knot over the weekend by sharing a string of snippets from inside their intimate special day. 

It comes after Gwen said she felt "insecure" before Blake proposed to her because they'd been together for six years and she was starting to wonder if it would ever happen.

Gwen and Blake hosted their wedding festivities in a little chapel built on Blake's ranch, which an insider previously told Us Weekly was a "tribute to their love".

Back in 2020, the source revealed, "Blake built a chapel on the grounds of his Oklahoma ranch. He did it himself with help."

"It's really a tribute to their love."

Congratulations, guys!
